REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Hearing on the amendment to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Retail Trade was held on August 27, 1934 in Room
#2062, Department of Commerce Building. The amendment,
which is attached, was presented by duly qualified and authorized
representatives of the Trade, complying with statutory requirements,
such representatives being members of the National Retail Code
Authority, Inc.
In accordance with the customary procedure, everyone present who
had filed a request for an appearance was freely heard in public,
and all statutory and regulatory requirements were complied with.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action of labor and ninaigement under adequate gov-
ernmental mainction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
c rearing the c(onsiiuption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabililitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the approval
of said amendment.
For these reasons I have approved said amendment to the Code
of Fair Competition for the Retail Trade.
Respectfully,
RHUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
SEPTEMBER 21, 1934.
